Shea Butter Benefits
Shea butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree and that is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers UV protection (it is SPF ~6) and provides the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production.
Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
Reduces Inflammation: A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. (source) One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.
Skin Smoothing: Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.
What actual customers are saying
Being a person that has always struggled with dry skin and testing all products out on the market I decided to order some Brooklyn Body Butter and, from the moment I received my package, I fell in love with the long lasting moisture. I will never buy lotion or coconut oil again, so I will forever be a customer thank you for such an amazing product!
My boyfriend never wanted to use lotion, lol. After trying Brooklyn Body Butter myself, I took it upon myself to get him a jar of the Man Butter. He absolutely loves it! I thought he was a lost case but Brooklyn Body Butter has him smelling good and looking good!
